User/player confusion?

Postby Bigpadg » Mon Apr 20, 2020 3:55 pm

Roku Media player and an app on my iPhone called C5 or Creation 5, both make no allowance for username entry so they both are represented by Subsonic as "guest". The problem is that if I have both Roku streaming and iPhone streaming, the same "player" is used for both "guests", therefore not showing both streams in the Monitor graphs. What can I do to make the user or the player unique to each platform?

DLNA Streamer like C5 never uses logins, for iPhone try substreamer that is using the Subsonic API and of course a user name, it is free and you can cache songs for offline use. For Music only ....
For round about 5$ you can buy play:sub very good for music and many options for Playlists and so on, but no Video support, but still my favorite. AVSub for music is also round about 5$ and for Video Option you need an upgrade with additional 5$ so far. AVsub supports also Chromecast and FireTV as an option, so if Roku supports that, may be it is also an solution.
Thats the only way I see, so you have for iphone a user and for the DLNA only guest ....
